Skinner Admits Combined Efforts of Old And Present Government Behind Addition of

One year is almost complete of the powers that were assigned to North Shore MP and Health Minister Mrs. Jillian Skinner. Now it's time that people are learning what all changes has the minister brought in the region till now and how much progress she has actually made in fulfilling all those election promises.

Though the minister's power was little successful in eradicating the Beauty Point rat run, Mrs. Skinner's official role has many other contributions made for the betterment of the region and its people.

On the anniversary of the Coalition's first year in power, Mrs. Skinner talked to the Daily at Royal North Shore Hospital on Monday, where she confidently addressed in her statement about the addition of the extra clinical services block and the big number of extra beds that were promised to be introduced during the elections (promises said that 1390 beds will be facilitated in the hospitals within four years but only 160 have been opened since January this year whereas the statements of the official are claiming opening of 565 beds) but not yet fulfilled (nobody knows why?).

"We have been successful in getting the extra clinical services block that will offer extra beds at Royal North Shore, redeveloping Chatswood community health centre, saving Cremorne community mental health centre and restoring north shore ferry services", Mrs. Skinner said.

But now the NSW government has recently released a fact sheet, in which the authority has clearly admitted that it has opened only 160 of 565 new hospital beds to serve the people in the hospitals. The action is the result of the combined efforts of both the present as well as the previous government i. e. O'Farrell government, which has opened the remaining 405 beds.
